Fractional Django Development - Part 4

A safe pair of hands means it's a fractional engineer you can trust not to break things often, and when they do (it's always when, not if), they come in with a solution quickly and efficiently. A safe pair of hands optimises code changes and designs not to break, by making the case for tooling and infrastructure that minimise the possibility of breakages in the first place. This tooling includes linters, CI/CD, infrastructure as code and testing to name a few.

The impact this has means development of features might be slower to begin with, but will in time ramp up to be efficient and quick. This ought to also give reassurance that this happens while a fractional developer serves multiple clients at a time, they are not going to leave your app in a broken state before moving on to the next client!
